Yes, David Durst did something similar. But your idea is still purely conceptual, I like it. I think this can be very helpful. But you can't do without help, my friend Maria is engaged in the analysis and collection of digital literature, you can contact her. She also collaborates with freebooksummary, a book resource. I think you will succeed. One way or another, I think it will take a long time for such a project.

To get started, you might want to look at David Darts's PirateBox project. It sounds like you want to take it a little further, but you might get some good ideas there.
